Beseech - Souls Highway

Song: Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
Cover Artist: Beseech
Album (Year): Souls Highway (2002)
Original Artist: ABBA


This is prime example of what I love about cover songs. When the two bands involved belong to genres that couldn’t possibly be further apart. In fact, about the only thing these two bands have in common is they’re both from Sweden.

Beseech was a gothic metal band that put out several albums in the early 2000’s. Hidden at the end of their 2002 album ‘Souls Highway’ was this plodding cover of one of ABBA’s biggest disco hits. You won’t have the urge to hit the dance floor for this track, but Beseech puts their own feel to the song and makes it their own.

    Good cover, good sound, but a little deeper in vocals than some of their other stuff. I looked for other albums by Beseech and the vocals are not as deep. This cover makes them sound like Type-O Negative. Still a good song though.

    Agreed. Though anyone who can make a disco song sound almost dirge-like earns points in my book.
